What is the Subaru Love Promise?

The Subaru Love Promise is just that. A promise. It is a promise to do right by our community by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations - to set Subaru apart through our deeds and the deeds of our partners. To be unlike any other car company by doing what is right and good, just for the sake of doing it.

The Love Promise starts with Subaru of America

We at Subaru of America stay true to the Love Promise by partnering with a wide variety of nonprofits and charities. In addition to these partnerships, every year Subaru, our owners, and our retailers join hands in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to charities across the country. Over the past 20 years, Subaru of America has donated over 50 million dollars to causes we care about, and logged over 28,000 volunteer hours.

All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of its people.

The charities' varying focuses and passions include:

Pets

Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.

A partner since 2008, Subaru has donated close to $14 million to the ASPCA and helped support nearly 1,000 pet adoption events, resulting in more than 11,500 adoptions to date.

Environment

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Over a decade ago, Subaru became the first U.S. auto manufacturer to become zero-landfill, and now, in collaboration with the National Park Service and the National Parks Conservation Association, Subaru is leveraging that same environmental expertise to help the National Parks reach zero-landfill too.

Education

It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Total donations to teachers: $92,233
Over 200 teachers adopted
More than 15,000 students impacts

Community

In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

Subaru and Meals on Wheels America worked together to make volunteering easier, by launching a tool called the Meals on Wheels Online Volunteer Drive.

Health

We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Subaru has donated more than $4.5 million dollars to
Make A Wish, helping to grant 610 wishes in the U.S.

How is Subaru Of Bend dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Love Promise Stories from Subaru Of Bend

Subaru of Bend Loves Pets!  –  Megan G

Subaru of Bend Loves Pets!

I am the Director of a local non-profit animal welfare organization whose mission is to keep pets and people together by providing affordable veterinary care. Recently, we were given the opportunity to provide 100 free microchips to cats and dogs in our community. Subaru of Bend was more than willing to host the event at their dealership. Not only did they offer space for the event, they provided all of the chairs, tables and tents for us! They even cooked hot dogs and provided sodas and Subaru pet gear all at no charge to our clients! All of the staff were super friendly and helpful. It meant the world that they treated our clients just like anyone else shopping at the dealership. They made a point to go through the line and say hello to many of the people and their cats and dogs. Many of our clients struggle to provide care for their pets because of financial constraints, so for Subaru of Bend to be so incredibly generous meant a lot not only to our organization but to our clients and their pets. We were able to provide 64 microchips that day, and help to make sure that if those 64 pets ever go missing, they will have a good shot at being reunited with their owners. Big thanks to a local business helping our community! Thank you Subaru of Bend, you guys rock!

Subaru supports financial aid at Cascades Academy

Cascades Academy would like to extend its deepest thanks to Subaru of Bend for coming out as the title sponsor of our annual auction this year. This event raises critical dollars for our students and teachers, and provides targeted support to a large percentage of families at our school who receive financial aid. Thank you, Subaru of Bend, for being a leader in our community and for supporting independent education in Central Oregon!


Butterly Heroes!!  –  Subaru B

Butterly Heroes!!

Subaru of Bend chose to take part in the Butterfly Heroes program with the National Wildlife federation in an effort to learn not only about the population drop for the monarch, but also what we could do to help!! We invite you stop by and check out our butterfly garden and pick up milkweed seeds so that you can plant your own Monarch habitat.


Subaru Empowers OAS  –  Cara F

Subaru Empowers OAS

We want to thank Subaru of America for helping support Oregon Adaptive Sports (OAS), a Central Oregon Nonprofit organization with the aim to provide life-changing outdoor recreation experiences for people with disabilities. During the winter of 2015-16 we were able to provide 225 individuals the experience of skiing, snowboarding, nordic skiing or snowshoeing concluding the season with an estimated 810 adaptive experiences. That is an IMPACT, one that could not be achieved without the support and empowerment from such organizations like Subaru of America. Thank you for helping us reinforce our mission.


Loved Not Lost - 100 Free Microchips  –  Megan G

Bend Spay and Neuter Project provides affordable preventative care to cats and dogs at risk of suffering and works to keep pets and people together through a variety of programs. Molly is a cute Pit Bull whose owners move around a lot. Molly was spayed for free through Bend Spay and Neuter Project's Pit Bull program and she receives free food once a month at the HOPE Pet Food Bank sponsored by Bend Pet Express and Bend Spay and Neuter. She doesn't get a chance to have many toys, so receiving one at the Subaru 100 Microchips event was a real treat for her! Her owners were so thankful that they were able to receive a microchip for free so that they could be reunited with Molly if they were ever separated! Thank you Subaru for helping Bend Spay and Neuter Project keep people and pets together for life!


E-Waste recycling event  –  Matt T

E-Waste recycling event

There are many things that we can do on a daily basis to limit our impact on the environment, so everyone at Subaru of Bend and many in the community took advantage of the E-waste event during the month of April. Computers, monitors, cords, vhs players, and much more were collected and sent to a recycling facility for processing and separating. Subaru of Bend thanks everyone for helping us to actively preserve the environment!!


Building a Backcountry Snoe Shelter  –  Larry W

Building a Backcountry Snoe Shelter

Formed in the early 1970s, the Central Oregon Nordic Club continues to flourish today, with over 200 members. The Club's mission is to provide a means whereby its members and others may cooperate in the enjoyment of outdoor recreation while promoting greater participation in and understanding of the values of outdoor recreation, with emphasis on ski touring and other winter snow sports and hiking. In alignment with that mission, the Club is working with the United States Forest Service to rebuild and possibly relocate the Swampy Snow Shelter in the Deschutes National Forest. Literally thousands of cross-country skiers and "snowshoers" have used the shelter for warmth and protection from the elements while enjoying Central Oregon's outdoors. In the summer months the shelter is a meeting place for mountain bikers. Alas, the Swampy Shelter is rapidly aging and in danger of imminent collapse. The generosity of Subaru of Bend is making it possible for the Club to see this project through to completion. The project enjoys widespread community support and in a few years a new shelter (similar to the rebuilt Nordeen Shelter) will be available. Thank you Subaru for helping to make this project a reality.


Sharing the Love  –  Kristy K

Sharing the Love

The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Oregon and the Bend Ronald McDonald House were so honored to be selected as recipient of the 2014 Share the Love Event. With support from Subaru of Bend ownership, management, and sales staff, customers purchasing a new Subaru in November or December, were encouraged to direct their $250 Subaru donation to us, to serve children and families from across our region. After 79 customers selected our charity, we were awarded $19,898--which could provide lodging for 25 families for a week at our facility. The Bend Ronald McDonald House provides a "home away from home" for families who must travel to Bend seeking medical care for their seriously ill or injured child, age 21 and under, as well as bed-resting, high-risk pregnant mothers. We are so grateful to Subaru and its wonderful customers for "Sharing the Love" with families from across our region, just when they need it most!

Subaru of Bend Supports Special Olympics Oregon

Subaru of Bend has been a valued partner for the Special Olympics Oregon Winter State Games at Mt. Bachelor for several years. They not only support Special Olympics financially but provide much needed volunteers as well for this fun event. In addition, they bring a beautiful new Subaru up to the mountain and proudly display it at the ski resort. We very much appreciate the continued support from Subaru of Bend.


Making a difference  –  Matt and Bill T

Making a difference

Chimps Inc. is a nonprofit, 501(C)3 wildlife sanctuary designed to provide lifetime care to captive chimpanzees rescued or retired from the pet and entertainment industries. We are dedicated to overcoming the exploitation and cruelty that they face through advocacy, conservation, education and outreach. Founded in 1995 in response to the multitude of captive chimpanzees desperately in need of homes, our sanctuary is located in rural Bend, Oregon. Love for the chimps and lynx is never in short supply here at Chimps Inc., but ensuring these precious animals have resources for other necessities - food, medical attention, plus a safe, clean and stimulating habitat - has become more challenging than ever. It costs a staggering $1,200.00 each month to care for, and house, just one chimpanzee. Because we are a non-profit organization and do not receive any federal funding, we rely solely on the generosity of our supporters and fundraising dollars to survive. Matt and Bill at Subaru of Bend have stepped up year after year and supported our sanctuary and the animals that call Chimps Inc. home! Thanks to their generosity we are able to provide the chimps and big cats days that are filled with choices, peace, dignity, companionship and care - worlds apart from the lonely, neglected lives many of them once knew. Thank you Subaru of Bend! Pant Hoots to you and all that you do in our community! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFgMh1PkyYs

Celebrating Central Oregon Pride 2014  –  Cliff C

Celebrating Central Oregon Pride 2014

We were looking for a major increase in the number of sponsor for Central Oregon Pride 2014 because it was our 10th annual pride festival and we wanted to make it bigger and better than ever! Knowing of the national support of Subaru for LGBT organizations we contacted our local retailer and much to our delight they said - we'd love to partner with HDC to help support pride. We then need to find a "limo" to get our drag queens from a hotel to the festival location and so we approached Subaru and suggested it they provided two vehicles they could do it. Subaru said of course and it will be a hoot and it was over the top. Just way way fun and all eyes were on those Subaru's vehicles as they brought 5 well know Oregon drag queens to the festival and stage! We are so thankful for Subaru of Bend.
